obama, what you would hope for from him and the united states in terms of the posture they take any amount of pressure they bring to bear on the iran and how much of a difference it would make, purely on human rights. >> i don't think any western country can't change the behavior of the iranian regime when it comes to the way it treats political prisoners and dissidents. i think that is the realistic view. when i was in prison, the world was absolutely silent about the fact that there were about 40,000, i'm not exactly sure what the number was, political prisoners in the iranian prisons, 90% under the age of 20. what the silence did for us in iran was that it robbed us from hope. yes, you cannot change the behavior of their iranian regime but what you can do this to give 7000 other political prisoners who are right now in prison, you can give them hope because the news does get into the prison. if they actually hear that you, in the united states of america -- and i promise you they will hear this, you are standing up for them and not about this masquerade of the nuclear thing that
. we are at the forefront of the obama administration's push to establish a broadband foundation needed to support the innovation economy in the united states. we are looking to produce better and new jobs and position to ensure that america remains at the forefront of the economy in the 21st century. we are working to ensure that all americans have the resources and the skills necessary to fully share in all of the possibilities, civic, social, and economic. all of these made possible by the internet. that is one of the reasons we are here today. he discovered for the administration is the broadband technology opportunities program or btop. this program was established in 2009 by the american reinvestment and recovery act and is administered by ntia. we have nearly $4 billion invested in roughly 230 projects across the country, all aimed at expanding broadband access and adoption in the country. and i want to tell you a little bit about the programs and then tell you about why we care so much about this issue. so, we have the btop for infrastructure projects. these are building broadba
that emboldens the republicans who wanted to go ahead and turn michigan into a right to work state. >> byron is right. this was the exact thing they voters for obama decided to shoot down this union bill. >> it's surprising. >> it caught us all by surprise. it isn't going to be like wisconsin. i think this bill is going to pass. and the situation in wisconsin was different. you had to get a quorum, and they tried to prevent a vote on the bill and took a month of protests. i don't think that will happen. just need a simple majority in michigan and they will pass the bill and they won't have a chance to repeal it until 2014. they will have to win back the senate, the house and the governor. >> it is likely to stop in michigan. you look at states with right to work legislation, the whole deep south and a couple states in the west but the upper midwest and northeast has tried to stay away from that because of the strong tradition of union organizing in the state. you have indiana going the other direction and michigan looking like they might, and wisconsin could be next up although the governor
